I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone so ungrateful in my life.
People that argue about how much more mentally ill they are versus someone else (for example: saying they don’t even know what depression/anxiety is, and/or stating that people that are less depressed/anxious than you are somehow doing it for popularity) is a very interesting concept for me, because i mean, you’re both in the same boat, wouldn’t you want someone to say ‘i know how it feels’? can’t you be happy for them that they are not where you are (yet)?
It doesn’t win you anything, you don’t get a ‘most mentally ill’ prize. You certaintly don’t win my respect, and you are just dismissing other peoples mental illnesses. If you were them, wouldn’t you feel hurt that other people aren’t taking your sadness/anxiety seriously? It makes it even worse when these people are supposed to understand what it’s like living with it.
If there was any group that should be the most understanding to people with anxiety/depression/other mental illnesses, it would be the mentally ill peers right?
Whenever I try to be more assertive and respond to situations in ways that actually let me defend myself, I somehow become the bad guy. It’s just hard, I mean I love people, and I don’t like the idea of people disliking me for reasons that aren’t truthful. I guess I can’t control how people react to what I do but it makes it harder for me to continue wanting to lead the life I want to lead when people keep on punishing me for it by abusing me.
I guess not everyone in the world is bound to like me or agree with me, but it’s hard when someone you’ve really loved and cared for takes something so personally and starts abusing you for something they don’t understand the truth of or motive for.
I don’t know. I guess it’s best just to leave things be, I can’t change the way people react to things, all I can really do is continue doing what I believe is right. I still love and care for my friend, that is unconditional, it’s just that I will do that from afar and leave them be and hope that whatever they choose to do goes towards happiness and the happiness of others.
Got another few photos back from Hex Photography for Razor Doll clothing.
It’s funny since at the moment it’s hella cold here in Perth, so seeing myself in a bikini makes me feel that much colder haha.
i tend to reblog cakes and stuff i can’t eat. it’s not like i want to eat them, because i’m actually not that big a fan of sweets, i just like what they look like.

1. What do I absolutely love in life?
Ever since I was a child my mum said my big thing in life is ‘to help people because i am such a kind and caring person’. I’m glad she instilled that into my personality because I’m well on my way to being a psychologist, or youth worker, not really sure where my talents/interests lie. I get a lot of love from doing that, being compassionate to all animals, including humans. My basis for human interaction is to always be compassionate when you can.
I love it when life is good, but I also appreciate it when it’s not because I know it will not last forever.
2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?
At first I’d like to say my academic stuff like my psychology degree but that’s not really where i find accomplishment. I mean I’m very happy that I got those marks and that degree but I think there is more to life than that, and accomplishment is not levelled on what degrees you have.
I’d probably say that I’m pretty proud of how better I’ve gotten in terms of mentality, my anxiety etc. I was in a bad place in my teenage years for the most part but then again who isn’t. I’ve grown a lot as a person since then, but I do still have a long way to go, but that’s okay :)
3. What would I stand for if I knew no one would judge me?
I don’t know, I think I stand up for the things that matter to me the most. I don’t care as much about what people think of me when I stand up for what I believe in. I stand up for animal rights, human rights, and the environment. I’d probably protest a bit more though!
4. If my life had absolutely no limits and I could have it all and do whatever I wanted, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?
Hmmm. I imagine something like a comfortable house, that is pretty much not extravagent, average sized. I’d like to live there with someone/people that I care about. I wouldn’t mind a decently sized shoe collection.
I know that when I retire my goal is to buy a big farm and rescue animals, but that will be a lot of work, but I think it would be worth it. I’d love to just be friends with all the animals that are there, and not want to get anything from them. It would be somewhere where I wouldn’t mind finishing my life. It would be very peaceful.
5. What would I do if I had one billion dollars?
I’d figure out how much I need for myself to survive then give most of it to charities. I’d give a lot to my family, and to my good friends. I’d probably put it in a trust fund and people can apply for the money and I’ll give it away on a case by case basis. So it can be for homeless people, people that are just low on funds, people that want to start a business in something they love etc. I’d get a lot of happiness out of that. I’ve never liked money, I’ve never liked having it, it stresses me out. But it does stress me out not having it too but I think it reminds me to be grateful of what I have, and be smart in what I buy and not spend 100000+ dollars on a suit or something stupid like that.
6. Who do I admire most in the world?
I’d say my mum. She supports me in everything I do even though it may not amount to anything, she is there to guide me when I’m being stupid, she has spent so much of her life and still does being devoted to my happiness and the happiness of my siblings. Both of my parents give 110% when it comes to us and I could not be more thankful for having such an amazing family. My entire family in fact have always been there for me and helped me financially, mentally and emotionally. They just have this infinite amount of compassion and it literally brings me to tears.
I have such a privelage. I know so many people that have shit upbringings and I really feel for them because to not have support from your family must be so hard. I’ve felt incredibly privelaged my entire life with the amount of love and luck I’ve received, so I think another reason why I aim to devote my life to helping others is to be there for them so that they know that there are people out there that care and love them and will devote 110% of their lives to bring them happiness.
I knew that writing this would be a bit emotional but I didn’t think I’d cry. Don’t worry it’s not unhappy crying :,)
